Join the big barrow parade on bank holiday Monday

Bickington and Barnstaple families invited to join a colourful wheelbarrow parade and family fun day

A decorated wheelbarrow parade and family fun day are expected to provide a wheelie good time in Bickington this bank holiday Monday.

Families and the community are invited to get creative and join the Deck-a-Barrow Parade which sets off from the Old Barn Inn at Bickington at 1.30pm.

Dress up your barrow and head for a family fun day and summer fair at Tews Lane playing field, where there will be plenty to see and do with stalls, games, a bouncy castle and much more.

The event is being organised by Scallywags Pre-school in memory of well known Scallywags committee member and North Devon Hospice fund raiser Sarah Taylor, who passed away in 2009.
